  • If you want your score sheets after the pageant, please be sure to bring a stamped self-addressed envelope to the pageant.

  • The Registration Deposit reserves your spot in the pageant. However, all contestants are required to fundraise at least $100 in Fundraising dues by June 1st in order to participate. Fundraising dues help defray the cost of producing the pageant (i.e. prizes, awards, trophies, facility rental, staging, lighting, judge’s expenses, etc.)  If you wish not to participate in fundraising, you may still reserve your spot in the pageant and then pay your $100 Fundraising dues by June 1st.

I understand that all contestants are required to raise at least $100 in Fundraising dues by June 1st in order to participate. Fundraising dues help defray the cost of producing the pageant (i.e. prizes, awards, trophies, facility rental, staging, lighting, judge’s expenses, etc.) The Fundraising dues can be raised through a combination of ads for the beautiful Keepsake ad book, Sash Outs, and Pageant Sponsorships. I understand that if I wish not to participate in fundraising I can still reserve my spot in the pageant by paying my registration deposit, and then pay my Fundraising dues by June 1st.

Once registered, the Fundraising Kit will be emailed to you.

By registering for the pageant, you fully understand these rules & regulations.
